Swans: The Hanging Man

Following the staggering It’s Coming It’s Real, the second piece unveiled from the coming Swans album, is the ten-minute tense cut, The Hanging Man, and through both these tracks Leaving Meaning is shaping up to be really good, as was foreseeable.

True to Swans' characteristic ominous and eerie tone, The Hanging Man finds Michael Gira delivering a dramatic and poignant vocal performance as he chants and thunders over a set of repetitive riffs and piano lines, which protrude over the song's overall rich and gripping instrumentals.

Leaving Meaning features a ton of contributors, both new and old which make up the latest version of the Swans' fascinating path. The album is due out October 25th, 2019 via Young God Records/Mute.
